Brother Justin Crowe - A Methodist minister in California's rich Central Valley, Justin and his sister, Iris, were tragically orphaned when their mother, Plemina, died in a train-crash. Like Ben Hawkins, Justin also experienced manifestation of supernatural powers at a young age-specifically the ability to see into others' souls accompanied by the powers of illusion and telekinesis. Horrified, traumatized by their fatal effect, young Justin sublimated these abilities into adulthood.
Raised by his surrogate father, Rev. Norman Balthus, Justin focused his energy into religious studies, eventually taking his vows as a minister. In 1934, devoted not only to his flock, but also to the poor Okies pouring in from the Dust Bowl, Justin began experiencing apocalyptic dreams and visions as, once again, the powers he buried so long ago have begun reasserting themselves. Along with the manipulations of Iris, Justin stands poised on the brink of fame as a radio evangelist.
Unofficial Random Points
Little aspects of Brother Justin's character that the official biographies never seem to mention. Probably due to their triviality.
- Milk + Brother Justin = Interesting occurrence. The moment he starts to drink milk, turn on your alarm bells.
- Brother Justin, unlike many of the other characters from Carnivale, is well-groomed. His clothes are pressed, his hair is brushed, and there is absolutely no chance of him being involved in a "bronzed-arms-covered-in-dust" shot.

“There's a lot of people out here that spend a lot of time in promotion, and that just seems like a big waste of time to me.”
“There have been a couple of jobs I've done without thinking, without being engaged, and they just stink.”
“Throughout the history of man, there has been a constant struggle between the forces of light and the forces of darkness. God and the Devil have decided to wage this war on Earth - with human proxies. Occasionally, these two avatars of light and darkness meet. And subsequently, a Dark Age or an Age of Enlightenment ensues.”
“I have something to say: it's better to burn out, than to fade away.”
